Mopho Keyboard is Coming Soon

Music Hardware : Mopho Keyboard is Coming Soon - macmusicDave Smith Instruments has posted some details about the keyboard version of the Mopho :

"It's no secret that a keyboard version of Mopho is in the works—particularly since two working prototypes were shown at NAMM in January! But we haven't posted anything to the site because we knew the finished product would look different from the protos and because we're really busy trying to get it done. If all the various bits and pieces come in on time, we hope to ship mid-April, but we still don't have a "real" one to show you. The image above should be pretty close, though.

The voice architecture and general specs are the same as the Mopho desktop module. Enhancements include programmable feedback gain, additional arpeggiator modes, and the ability to set the slew rate separately for individual sequence steps. (Yes, the latter two features will eventually find their way into the other products in the Mopho/Tetra/Prophet family.) It features a semi-weighted keyboard action with velocity and aftertouch. And it has great feeling, two-shot, soft-touch knobs.

The eagle-eyed among you may find it odd that a monophonic synth has a unison on/off parameter. When paired with a Tetra, Mopho Keyboard makes a very compact, very powerful five-voice poly synth!

We'll have more information and full specs available here on the site as we get a little closer to production.
